Battle Of Cable Street Tea Towel
The year was 1936. Fascist leader Oswald Mosley wanted to march his Blackshirt thugs through the heart of East London, then home to a large number of Jewish residents. Despite a petition signed by 100,000 people, who saw the march as a deliberate provocation, the Home Secretary refused to ban it, deploying 7,000 members of the police force to accompany it and protect the marchers.
But the people weren’t having it. On the day of the march, 20,000 anti-fascists took to the streets, determined to prevent the march. They barred the way with road blocks – including a bus and a tram – wielding makeshift weapons: sticks, rocks, chair legs, rotten vegetables.
Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm.
Machine wash at 40 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
